Offered for sale is this original 1956 Crown Imperial Series C70 8 passenger Southampton sedan. This is 1 of 51 produced that year. In 1955, the Chrysler Corporation spun off Imperial into its own make and division to better compete with its North American rivals, Cadillac and Lincoln.

The 1956 models included the Hemi V8 enlarged from 331 ci in to 354 cu in with 280 brake horsepower. Power is transferred to the rear via the Imperial dash push-button "PowerFlite" transmission introduced for the 1956 models. This car is factory equipped with, power windows, seat, steering and brakes along with optional factory air conditioning and transistor radio.

The interior on this Imperial was restored with original fabrics and the wiring was replaced about five years ago. The car runs but will need mechanical attention to ensure all systems are operating to factory new standards.

Asking $23,000 or best offer.
